Rollover injury accident on Eureka Drive

By Katherine Wartell

A 19-year-old woman was ejected from her pick-up truck and transported to the hospital for minor injuries following a two-car accident in the 5500 block of Eureka Drive at approximately 7:20 a.m. Tuesday morning.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Ashley Teneyck, of Alma, was driving her 2005 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck on Eureka Drive, west of Roever Road, when she changed lanes to pass a 1997 Pontiac Trans Am driven by Trevor Gadue, 21, Manhattan.

Kyle said that their cars side-swept each other after Gadue, not aware that Teneyck was passing him, pulled over to pass a vehicle in front of him.

The impact caused Teneyck’s truck to enter the ditch, where it flipped about five times, Kyle said, ejecting Teneyck from the car. Riley County EMS transported her to Mercy Regional Health Center for non-life threatening injuries. Gadue was not injured.

Kyle said officers cited Teneyck for driving too fast for conditions, no proof of liability insurance and for not wearing a seatbelt. Gadue was cited for improper lane charge and driving too fast for conditions.
